KAMS is the state’s premier early-entry-to-college program for high school juniors and seniors, focusing on strong academics, hands-on research opportunities, a vibrant on-campus living community and leadership opportunities. Students in the academy stay enrolled in their high school but live on the FHSU campus and take college courses to complete their last two years of high school.
